If you are looking to expand your knowledge, gain an edge in the employment market, or pursue an entirely new career direction, then postgraduate study could be the answer.

Undertaking a postgraduate degree enables you to build on your professional experience. It can help you keep up-to-date with industry developments, or gain fresh skills and knowledge in exciting new areas.

Many courses are modular in nature, with completion of the entry-level (Graduate Certificate) and intermediate (Graduate Diploma) programs providing a stand-alone qualification as well as advancing you towards the Master level qualifications if you choose to progress your studies further.

All of our postgraduate courses are available full-time or part-time, with some being delivered in evening classes or fully online, enabling you to balance your study with work or other commitments.

This course can serve as your entry pathway to the MBA, MBA (Advanced) or Graduate Diploma in Business.
